year viewed with awe and admiration the handiwork of our upper 
classmen, now with fear and trembling present our Allerlei to our 
fellow-students, and especially to the Class of '05. <J Our only hope 
is that you will not judge it too harshly, and that some of its con- 
tents may please and interest you. ^ If our little book accomplishes 
this, we shall feel amply repaid for the infinite amount of labor 
and time spent upon it. ::::::::::::: : 


To whom the Juniors dedicate their Allerlei with grateful affection 


Principal of Lasell 

Honorary Member of Class of 1906 

Cloo of Out Basdt ^on%8 




Bound firm by a bond unbroken, 

Love for old Lasell, 
Take we now a pledge outspoken 

E'er to guard her well. 

Chorus — Alma Mater, Fidelitas, 
Pledge, girls, for loyalty ; 
Sing it now before we part, 
We'll ever faithful be. 


Bright school days are quickly past, 
Enjoy them while we may ; 

Memory still shall them outlast 
When we are far away. 



In moonlight reposing, its charms all disclosing, 

Our student home is shining on the hill ; 
To-night we are singing, our voices are ringing, 

Are ringing o'er the campus white and still. 

Chorus — Come ! Come ! Sing with a will, 
Sing for old Lasell with a cheer ! 
While others are sleeping, 
We'll still watch be keeping, 
A watch of song o'er Alma Mater dear. 


These old walls resounding, with mem'ries abounding, 
Shall echo to our loyal, loud refrain ; 

And when far we're parted. 

With longing sad-hearted, 
Its lingering notes shall draw us back again.

Senior Ctaes jfyigtoxp 

" Unlike my subject now shall be my song, 
It shall be witty (?) and it shan't be long." 

Sara Frances Bragdon, S.D.C[Straight- 
est Senior. After acquiring an in- 
finite amount of knowledge from the 
seats of learning at Evanston, 111., 
she came to Lasell, where she has 
dazzled the inhabitants since by the 
brilliancy of her intellectual powers. 
When she graduates she will leave 
a great vacuum in the literary circles 
of the " Hub," as well as in the 
hearts of her many admirers. 
" Great wit is sure to madness close allied." 

Hazel Marion Carey, Delta.CJStylish- 
est Senior. She comes from Joliet, 
and certainly must be older than she 
looks because she's such a friend of 
Adam. Does she live in 28 
Senior Hall E? 


" Style is the dress of thoughts." 

Mary Roberta Clark, Delta, Capt. 
Co. A. CJ Struckest Senior. The 
farm five and one half miles south- 
east of Frankfort, Ind., was suddenly 
awakened when Mary Roberta 
Clark arrived. But it settled again 
into a state of quietness and serenity 
when " Bobbie " came to Lasell to 
gain the culture and refinement of 
the East. 

" The intellect is finite, but the affections 
Are infinite and cannot be exhausted." 

Helen Alice Darling, S.D., Masquer. 
^Slenderest Senior. " The Gearl of 
Pawtucket " first graced our learned 
halls in the fall of '03. She is ever 
to be found propped against the 
wall with her eye anxiously glued 
to the P. O. box waiting for a letter 
with a Springfield stamp. 

" And if I laugh at any mortal thing, 
Tis that I may not weep." 


Edith Clara Harber, Secretary Senior 
Class, Delta, Masquer. <fl Sentimen- 
talest Senior. Cheer up, Blooming- 
ton, Edith will soon be with you. 
Seems to be irresistibly drawn to 
Room 1 1 . Keeps a sharp eye on 
foreign mail. Acknowledged mu- 
sical genius of the Senior Class. 

" Music hath charms to soothe the savage 

Martha Gay Haskell, President Sen- 
ior Class, S.D., Masquer. <J Sedatest 
Senior. The two milestones which 
marked the progress of her popu- 
larity on the road to fame were the 
appointments to the presidential chair 
during her Sophomore and Senior 
years. She ponders over the C. E. 
column of the Greeting. Prob- 
ably this interest which she feels 
arises from the pride she feels in her 
native town of Auburndale. She 
never does to-day what she can put 
off till to-morrow. 

" A lucky chance, that oft decides the fate 
Of mighty monarchs." 

Margaret Christine Henderson, Treas- 
urer of Senior Class, S.D., Masquer. 
€fl Smartest Senior. She is one of the 
pillars of Fort Madison. Beautifully 
posted in church history. She seems 
quiet and demure ; but is she ? Of 
a retiring disposition, first by nature 
and second by compulsion. Proves 
herself invaluable in Lit. class when 
she answers her questions, as she 
leaves class early. 

" There lies a deal of deviltry beneath her 
mild exterior." 

Ida Ruth Jones, Lasellia. <J Silentest 
Senior. Quiet, unassuming Ida Jones 
hails from Evanston, a suburb of 
Chicago ; and who would ever think 
she had lived so near that rapid 
town ? But let us take courage ; 
she has come to Lasell to be pol- 
ished and subdued. She has shown 
marked literary ability as editor of 
the Leaves. 

" Speech is silvern, silence is golden." 

[1 7] 

Nell Davis Jones, Lasellia. ^ Serious- 
est Senior. We borrowed her from 
" Gay Paree." It is a distinction 
to have someone from Paris, even 
though it is Paris, 111. She gives to 
all the lecturers who come to town 
the inspiration of an attentive listener. 

" He who is rich in friends is poor in nothing." 

Miriam Hall Nelson, Vice President 

Senior Class, S.D., Masquer. <J 

Strongest Senior. Why of course 

we've all heard of Derby Line, 

because that's where Miriam lives. 

She has given up her position in 

Military Drill, but still keeps up a 

keen interest in military affairs. 

" Ye are wondrous strong. 
Yet lovely is your strength." 

Eila Patterson, Gamma Tau, Mas- 
quer. <1 Smallest Senior. Eila hies 
from Craftesbury, Vt. She is Mrs. 
Martin's only inspiration. Her 
Christmas vacation was prolonged 
so that she might satisfy her childish 
desire to indulge in the mumps. She 
boarded the lightning express when 
she made up her Lit. lessons. 

" The light that lies 
In woman's eyes." 

Mary E. Potter, S. D. «J Saintliest 
Senior. Although she comes from 
that wide-awake city, Milwaukee, 
she seems to be dwelling in the en- 
vironments of a mystic dream. Un- 
like most of the Seniors, who labor 
with mediocre success during a whole 
year, Mary does the work in half 
the time. 

"Of manners gentle; of affections mild." 


Edna May Rogers, Delta, Masquer. 
•I Sunniest Senior. The " thin- 
skinned " of our number came to us 
from Watertown, N. Y. Because 
of the atmosphere of deep gloom 
and stillness which she always carries 
about her she is an invaluable aid to 
study in the library, and should be 
constantly on hand there. Holds 
the mirror up to nature in the per- 
sons of our honored Faculty, with 
most of whom she is on familiar 
terms. Can do anything she wants to. 

"The proper study of mankind is man." 

Grace Evangeline Rowe, S. D. <J 
Scaredest Senior. Why does she de- 
serve this title ? Did you ever hear 
Dr. Bragdon say, " Shall I tell about 
the candy on the cars? " Does she 
" eat candy on the cars " when she 
goes home to Glens Falls ? 

"Sweets to the sweet ; farewell." 

Barbara Cushman Vail, S.D., Capt. 
Com. B. President of the Missionary 
Society. ^J Serenest senior. She 
might be called one of the land- 
marks of Lasell. Being so far away 
from home, and not being able to 
appear in native costume, it is hard 
for newcomers to place her as the 
" Japanese Girl " of the catalogue. 

" There are no tricks in plain and simple 

Laura Ellis Weaver, Delta, Glee 
Club. •! Submissivest Senior. She 
is anxious to return to her home in 
Xenia, Ohio, where she can keep 
the light on at her own sweet will. 
A very sweet singer. 

"Courteous though coy, and gentle though 


Ada Beatrice Wells, S.D. § Shyest Mar y Kuykendale W.llett, Gamma 

Senior. The very name of this 
maiden from Newton upholds the 
reputation of the Senior Class for 
its depth of thought. 

" Study and ease 
Together mixed, sweet recreation." 

Alice Leslie White, S.D. <J Scientific- 
est Senior. Biff ! Bang ! Boom ! 
Zip ! Leslie gets there. Although 
she seems to have no impediment in 
her speech, she spends much of her 
time in the pursuit of English. Usual 
remark at 9.30 P. M., " I've five 
lessons to-morrow and don't know 
one of them." 

" Learn to read slow ; all other graces 
Will follow in their proper places." 

Tau. t]I Scholarliest Senior. She is a 
spark from the Flint of Michigan. 
Favorite book, Lavendar and Old 
Lace. Has made deep researches 
into Parliamentary Rules. 

" Thy purpose firm is equal to the deed ; 
Who does the best his circumstance allows, 
Does well, acts nobly ; angels could no 
more. " 

Agnes Louise Wylie, S.D., Masquer. 
President Christian Endeavor. <| 
Sweetest Senior. Chicago lost a 
precious gem when Agnes left. Has 
thoughts too deep for utterance, but 
in the French class she occasionally 
volunteers to explain them (" in 
English, Mile. ? ") 

" None knew her but to love her." 


" And life's enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim '

JE)iBtot£ of t$t Cicxm of 1906 


WHEN the Juniors entered upon their work for the year 04--5 it was with a keen sense of responsibility, 
unencumbered by undue self-esteem, owing to the exhaustion of that sensation during the preceding year. 
The absolute necessity and importance of a class such as ours was proved early in the year, when we 
delivered the Freshman meeting from the hands of invading Sophomores, and so great was the appreciation of that 
devoted class that they felt in duty bound to warn us whenever a Senior entered the building. 

Our first attempt to organize was carried through successfully — of course. Not from a sense of impending danger, 
not from an idea of necessary secrecy, merely to start as we intended to finish — on top — -did we rise with the birds and 
enjoy our first class meeting. I believe the Seniors did happen in with friendly intentions, but they were promptly 
repulsed, even the one who suddenly showed such an intense love for music that she firmly attached herself to the piano. 
We were never interrupted again, and how many vital questions have we pondered over and solved, discussed and 
debated, in the room at the end of the corridor — Room 41 ! 

At the Senior entertainment we held a prominent position, occupying the first four rows of seats, but our turn was 
yet to come. When all had retired to their rooms and the house was quiet, suddenly there broke forth upon the calm, 
crisp air the voices of the enthusiastic Juniors, giving their class yells. The Seniors cordially invited us in, and we 


The Allerlei 

were about to partake of a cup of tea when such a blow came to our dignity ; it was the announcement that we had 
been sent for to come home to bed ! 

Although humbled and often oppressed by visions of blank pages or, worse still, uninteresting ones in the 
" Allerlei, " our spirits are not dulled ; and while we endeavor to imitate the illustrious example of our Seniors, and be 
worthy " supes," we are looking forward with sorrow-tinged joy to the week in June when our Seniors have said their 
farewell, and we take possession of the crow's nest — Seniors! 

Rickety— rackety— rah— rah— rah ; 
Hullabaloo, hou)-do-^ou-do ; 
We're the Juniors — who are you?

^op^omote Class %i^tox^ 


PASSING through the insignificant stages of " Preps " and " Freshies," we have at last attained the dignity of 
Sophomores. At the beginning of the year our class, by reason of its spirit and energy, gave promise of paving 
its way to fame and it has most assuredly lived up to its early predictions, so that we can now in all modesty 
say that we are the greatest Sophomore Class Lasell has ever produced. The historian feels deeply the weighty respon- 
sibility imposed upon her of imparting to the world a slight knowledge of the doings of this wonderful class, but hopes all 
will fully appreciate the great inadequacy of the English language. 

From the first, wise " old " girls impressed upon new arrivals the fact that great benefits were to be derived from 
being a regular, so our ranks increased daily and we can now boast the proud number of forty. 

Though in September many weeping maidens cried unremittingly for home and refused to be comforted, all can 
now say with beaming eye and radiant smile, " Dear Everybody, I love you." With our improvement in disposition we 
have also grown and waxed great in stature and circumference during our sojourn at Lasell, which can scarcely be 
doubted from the amount we have Eaton. The favorite dish of all loyal Sophomores is Bacon. 

That we are a Master (s) hand at Parliamentary Law, is shown clearly by the fact that all other classes are so 
remarkably eager to be present at our class meetings and learn wisdom from us. Indeed, on one occasion it required the 


The Allerlei 

I 9Uo combined eloquence of the Seniors and Sophomores, together with the use of our muscular development gained in gym, 
to restrain the Juniors and Freshmen in their mad thirst for knowledge. 

In loyalty to our sister class we eclipse all, for what could prove this fact better than that two faithful Sophomores 
left downy beds of ease in the chilly dawn of an autumn morn and hastened to Senior Hall to warn its unconscious 
inmates of an ante-breakfast Junior Class meeting? And on the memorable night when the Seniors first appeared in caps 
and gowns did we not patrol the halls for hours and shadow all suspicious Juniors and Freshmen lest they suspect the 
great secret ? 

In literary lines we have learned to spell and read fluently, so that, unlike the other classes, we can tell the difference 
between H. E. and H. F. (Carter) ; with equal accuracy we can prove that " therefore but one can be drown," demand 
furiously " How long will you abuse our patience ! " (with this class history) and explain what makes popovers rise. We 
could Argue with you for hours on " Home Sanitation " and " Business Law for Women." We are not to be Stahl-ed 
by the weightiest problem, and from East to West have no rivals. Only Wait until 1907 when this class goes (Dan) 
forth to win its laurels, and all will be proud to class us as their former schoolmates.

Qjt (page from ^e jV^^tnan j^ouxnat 


FRIENDS, classmates, enemies, lend me your eyes that you may trace the brilliant history of the class of naughty- 
eight through the phases of its first faltering, uneventful days, to the marvelous achievements of its present 
grandeur. On what class, if not the Freshman, are dependent all the future hopes and pride of Lasell ? What 
class is more able to uphold its highest standards and bring everlasting fame to its fair name ? Seniors grow careless 
through assured success ; Juniors are dazzled by enticing visions of their approaching future ; and Sophomores — well, 
people who live, breathe and have their being within the limited sphere of their own conceits, cannot devote sufficient time 
to the glory of their Alma Mater. We, then, dignified in spirit, if not in name, have undertaken to fill a position of 
great responsibility. 

During the latter part of September and the first part of October, year of our Lord nineteen hundred and four, 
some among us were very susceptible to the inevitable " first impressions," but there were others whose vivid hue of 
green had been partly varnished over by the Prep, year, and so with an intuition born of experience we tried to take 
every precaution and hold our first class meeting in greatest secrecy. While waiting in breathless silence with the hope 


The Allerlei 

that a few more Freshmen would come, the door was quietly opened, and whom should we see stealing in but a horde of yvo 

barbarians in the shape of unfriendly Sophs, who put a stop to proceedings. " Ever wishing to be true to tradition," 
and promptly quelling any thought of rebellion, we settled down to an evening of defiant tolerance, determined to tire our 
enemy by a campaign of " non-action." Suddenly, however, our guardian spirits whispered from the hallway to ascer- 
tain our progress, and upon learning facts there was a — well, something must have happened, for the room was cleared of 
the intruders before we realized it, and with one accord our gratitude found vent in an enthusiastic shout of " Juniors! 
Juniors ! "

September 27. 






Great excitement in Auburndale. People are actually getting off the 
trains ; the carriage drivers are kept busy conveying newcomers somewhere, 
and real folk are walking along the streets. The sleepy little town seems 
to have awakened suddenly out of a long slumber. What is the cause of 
this outburst of noise, confusion and activity, where lately all was calm 
and quiet? Dear friends, come closer, and I will whisper it. 'Tis only 
that to-day Lasell Seminary for Young Women opens. 

New girls gaze through homesick mists, with wonder and amazement, 
at the enthusiastic meetings of old girls with old girls. 

The new girls are serenaded by — 
could it Don't be alarmed. 

- What? Harvard men, Tech.; then 
The new girls are serenaded by the 

old girls, and really respond so well to the yells that the old girls get quite 
excited, and wish that their sisters were just a little less smart. 

The new arrivals view things in a little less green-hued maze, the old ones 
in a little less golden-colored light. 


The Allerlei 

October 2. Nature dons her gayest tinted frocks now, to 
cheer up a few tearful girls. 

5. The new girls surprise the old ones exceedingly 
by a very original and charming serenade; thereby 
illustrating what was aforementioned, that they are 
a pretty wide-awake lot. 

<5. Old girls entertain the new girls with a dance in 
the Gym. Everybody is in high good humor, 
and seems not to mind at all having her shoulder 
knocked off or one hundred pounds descend on 
her foot. 

15. A knowledge of law is of great benefit to all. 
You never know what peculiar fate Fortune is 
going to allot you ; but whether it be that you 
must face the stern, cold world alone, or remain 
in a sheltered home, a little insight into the statutes 
of the courts will be of immense value to you. 
Hence — Lectures ! 

20. New Maid at Senior House. 

29. Harvard-Pennsylvania game. Great excitement 
among girls who have brothers (?) on the teams. 

31 . Hallowe'en. A queer conglomeration of person- 
ages gather in the Gymnasium. The petite 

October 31. French demoiselle converses with an African 
gentleman and a Quaker maid with a gay young 
dilettante. For some strange reason they all 
disappear about nine o'clock.

cannot be found. She searches high and low,

deepest sympathy and regret.

ungratified, the Junior Class, with their inherent

it. A costly, rich-toned ebony piano is purchased 
and sent over, accompanied by a fitting poem,

3. The Junior Class is very graciously and hospitably 
entertained by the Senior Class in their charming 
little mansion across the way. During the course 
of the afternoon the President of the Class speaks 
feelingly of the magnificent gift with which the 
Juniors have presented them, and begs that the 
Junior President be the first to bring forth its 
melody. The latter complies with her request, 
and renders one of our national airs in a manner 
pleasing to all.

Hush ! be still ! A child approaches, 

With a pigtail down her back ; 
Furtive glances 'round she's casting ; 

She has lost her way. Alack ! 
From the stairway by the chapel 

Turns she back to sigh and fume, 
"The stairway by the boxes, only, 

Will lead me up to my room." 
Never mind, dear little Freshman, 

You will soon well know your way. 
Wipe away those homesick teardrops, 

And make up your mind to stay. 

Hush ! a door bangs in the hallway ; 

Exits she with pompous stride 
Who has earned so grand a title 

That she scarce can see for pride. 
"Yes indeed, dear, I'm an old girl ; 

Let me help you find your door. 
Soon / shall be graduated, 

For this year I'm Sophomore ! " 

Hush! don't speak! You might disturb her. 

She who comes must do or die. 
For she's only a poor Junior, 

Whose whole year spells "A-1-l-e-r-l-e-i." 
Graduation seems afar off ; 

Visions only — cap and gown. 
How remote seem Senior essays, 

Evening calls and trips in town ! 

Hush ! bow down and gaze with reverence 

On this being who appears ! 
She has fought her way victorious 

Through the darkest doubts and fears. 
She has lived to tell the story, 

Studied faithfully and well ; 
And proclaims to all the wide, wide world, 
"I'm a Senior of Lasell ! " 



Miss C-rp-nt-r : "You care not for another's pain." 

Miss W-th-rb-e : "My mind to me a kingdom is. 
Such present joys therein I find, 
That it excels all other bliss 
That earth affords, or grows by kind." 

Dr. W-tk-ns : "His resolve upbore him, and firm faith." 

Miss N-tt : "There is no rest for me below." 

Miss P-tt-r : "At night 1 would roam abroad."

'"X XT THO is it who disturbs the study hour by the whispering ? " Mademoiselle's small face flushed nervously as 
% \ I she asked her first question as disciplinarian ; and she would gladly have retracted her words as a tall, 
" * slender girl rose, and smiled frankly. " Did I disturb you, Mademoiselle ? " For a moment Mademoiselle 

longed to smile back into the frank, girlish face, and say, "Not at all"; but her dignity must be established now, once 
and for all time, or her influence over the young ladies would be lost forever. Everyone had told her that, and she had 
believed them. 

She looked at the girl coldly, and merely said, " The whispering disturbs, always." 

" I never whisper, Mademoiselle ; I was talking out loud," was the quick reply ; for Patricia was a Senior, and 
until now that smile of hers had never failed to accomplish its purpose among the Faculty. 

Mademoiselle bit her lips with vexation, and the murmur of subdued laughter rang in her ears. 

" Ma'm'selle will be so kind as to take the studies to her room ? " she inquired, half expecting to receive an 
answer in the negative ; but Patricia, half angry, half amused, at the unwonted turn so usual an occurrence had taken, 
remembered that the new French teacher was not yet accustomed to the ways of the school, and picking up her books 
she walked demurely to her room. 

[ 76] 

The Allerlei 

That night, the first of the school year, Mademoiselle shed many tears for many different reasons. First of all, 1906 
she was homesick ; secondly, she had incurred the ill-will of the one girl at school she most wished to know ; and worst 
of all, she knew that she had made a great mistake. 

The next morning Patricia walked back from chapel with a group of her adoring classmates. 

" O, Patty Craven," cried Elizabeth Burns, " where is all your Senior spirit ? I nearly died last night when you 
walked out from Study Hour like the most demure Freshie, with your " 

" O, I say, Beth, I hope you're not extinguished as easily as all that, for I have a rare bit of news for you." 

" Tell it ! " " Tell it ! " " Let's have it ! " cried a dozen voices. 

" Well, I've elected Junior French, and have changed my course so that all five hours come with my Mademoi- 
selle of the black eyes ! " 

True indeed, Patty was always doing queer things, but the girls couldn't understand why, at the last moment, she 
should throw aside the snap course she had spent all vacation arranging, give up her favorite lectures, and take the stiffest 
course in the catalogue, in order to recite to the new French instructor, who had sent her from Study Hour like a child 
in the grammar school. 

For three months Patty spent an hour each day with Mademoiselle in the French room ; an hour of perfect bliss 
for both. Patty, enthusiastic over the one study she cared at all about understanding; Mademoiselle, radiant with 
pleasure as her native language flowed smoothly from her pupil's tongue. 


The Allerlei 

I sOo "Ah! M'amselle cest la musique!" she would exclaim; and the red would creep into her thin cheeks, as she 

showed her beautiful teeth in a smile which transformed her whole being. 

But outside the class room teacher and pupil passed each other with a constrained nod of the head ; for after Patty 
had made advances, only to be repulsed, she had ceased to trouble about " the queer little thing," who always witnessed 
her wildest escapades, but never reported her, and who always seemed like her shadow, persistent and unresponsive. 

At the end of the semester, in the midst of the mid-year exams., four of the girls came into Patty's room to 
make fudge. Patty presided over the chafing dish and Elizabeth scraped the chocolate. The Allen twins sat on the 
bed and Betty Newton was perched on the table beside the chafing dish. 

" How are you coming on with your exams., Patty ? " asked Elizabeth, as she scraped the chocolate into the dish. 

" Patty will flunk in everything but French," Betty declared, " and she will pass that for the love of Mademoiselle." 

" Well, if you'll tell me what you see in that mousey-looking thing ! " cried twin number one. " Every time I 
come here she is just scampering away from your door. I should have fits if she shadowed me the way she does you, 
Patty ; and then if you speak to her she turns pale, and looks as though she might bite." 

" That'll do, Twinnie ; that'll do. Get me some water to try if this be done. Not quite. You may eat the 
sample. Now, I can't tell you why, but that little mouse fascinates me. You should have heard her reading De Musset 
in the class room this morning ! 

" II est doux de pleurer, il est doux de sourir 
Jlu souvenir des maux qu'on pourrait oublier." 


The Allerlei 

You'd actually feel as though she had some great grief which she was longing to forget in a burst of tears. I feel drawn to 

her, and yet more water, Twinnie. Wait!" and the girls jumped to their feet, as Patty held up a sticky finger. 

" Into the closet, all four of you, and don't you dare come out until I open the door for you. " 

Patty blew out the alcohol lamp, and put the fudge, not yet done, under the bed. As a knock sounded at the 
door she drew a chair up to the table, and opening a book, she called, pleasantly, " Come in." 

There was a slight pause, and in came, not the Proctor, but Mademoiselle. She looked at Patty, sniffed around 
the room, and for a moment a look of childish disappointment swept across her face. Then, as if remembering her 
position, the cold, forbidding look settled on her countenance. 

" Ma'm'selle Craven, has she been making the fudge ? " 

At the sound of that hard voice all thoughts of deception were banished. 
" Mademoiselle," began Patty ; and with a sudden determination she continued : " Why are you always prying 
around my room ? What are my doings to you, since you never seem to care to report me ? We have been making 
fudge. It is spoiling under the bed this minute, and there are four girls in the closet." 

Patty paused in amazement, for Mademoiselle had burst into tears, and was down on the floor burying her face 
in the cushions. In an instant Patty was down beside her, drawing the trembling little figure to her own. 

" You poor little mite," she said. " Tell me all about it." 

" O, Mees Patty, it ees that I haf made the great mistake ; it ees — that I am so lonely " ; and she sobbed as 
though her heart were breaking. 


The Allerlei 

" ° Little by little Patty drew out her pitiful story. Sent to America from a pension in her native France, where 

she had been a bright, fun-loving schoolgirl until the death of both parents, she had found an opportunity to earn her 
living by teaching, and she had come to the school determined to do her duty and act the part of the teacher, shutting 
out all memories of her own interrupted boarding-school life. The temptations to witness Patty's good times proved too 
much for her, for she had become attached to the girl, with all the passion of her French nature, and the smell of fudge 
had enticed her into the very lines of the enemy she had fought against so long. 

" You're the best and bravest thing I ever knew ! " sobbed Patty ; " and I'll show you what good times in 
America are like. You see if I don't ! " 

Patty had become quite savage in her excitement, and, laughing and crying by turns, they were wholly unaware 
of the four girls who crept out from the closet behind the door, with tears streaming down their faces, the fudge forgotten 
in its hiding place. As the two friends said good night Patty understood, not only the significance, but the truth of the 
lines she had heard that morning : — 

" 77 est doux de pleurer, il est doux de sourlr 
Jiu souvenir des maux qu'on pourrait oublier. "

Breakfast as soon as all are assembled. 

Lunch at about 12.15. 

Prayers from 1 2.45 until inclined to stop. 

One is not expected to be absent from meals unless one pre- 
fers to sleep, is not hungry, or has no time to eat. 

Walking bell at 2.20 intended to suggest that outdoor exer- 
cise is beneficial. It is hoped that this suggestion will be acted upon. 

No visiting in pupils' rooms is expected except when important gos- 
sip has been forgotten, or when there is an engaged sign on the doors. 

After visiting from 7.30 — 9.00, a short recess is given at 
9.00 ; at 9. 1 all are expected to run for water or to go on next 
floor to " tell " friends " good-night." 

The last bell at 9.30 is a signal to turn off light within the 
next fifteen minutes, and 1 0.00 to talk over the events of the day 
with sufficient clearness to penetrate neighboring transoms. 


Rising gong at 7.1 5. Rise at 7.45. 
Breakfast at 8.00 ; served in rooms if preferred. 
Dinner at 1 .00. (Students at French table are expected to

Tea at 5.30. Fudge cake to be transferred from dining room 
to indisposed roommates. (Napkin or blouse may be used for this 

Immediately after breakfast are morning prayers followed by

ing the work not earlier than 10.30 o'clock. 

Seniors are allowed to go to Keith's and indulge in " candy on 
the cars " on the way home. 

Undergraduates may go to Waltham, if Boston privileges have 
been exhausted. 

Room hours to be spent in the evening as usual. 


The Allerlei 


If an entertainment in the evening lasts beyond 9.00 o'clock, 
no one is expected to betray any signs of uneasiness. There will 
be no bells and students will go to their rooms immediately by the 
central staircase (after first trying to pass Miss Potter and go by 
way of the boxes), except those Seniors who have strikes or very 
affectionate supes. 


Don't forget to put your sheets out every Saturday at seven. 
Don't forget to tie your laundry list secure. 

If there's just one piece too many, 
Or a handkerchief they lack, 

Depend upon it, friend,

When you come late into dinner, stop and tell Miss Potter why. 
If you wish your meals sent up, let Miss Nutt know. 
Even though you're very hungry 
You'll get toast and dainty tea, 
Perhaps a juicy orange, 

And six white grapes, maybe. 

When a pain in your appendix makes you think 'tis time to die, 
Just before an English quiz or time for church, 
Specify your reason for it ; 

Feel sharp pains throughout the head, 
And you'll get an " M. L. N." 
And go-to bed (?) 

If you give your name in for a list and then see fit to change, 

Report it when Miss C is not around, 

For she's likely to say something ; 

Something neither kind nor sweet, 
And you'll feel as though your stature 
Had diminished some few feet. 

Don't lock your door, dear birdies, in the daytime or at night. 
Ask all questions at the window ; Mabel's there. 
Buy paper and have ink-wells filled 

At the office of Miss Maud, 
And absence of the safety-wells 
Are very much deplored. 

Of course, no one of you would thinfy of attaching to the walls 
A picture by a tack or by a pin ! 

In a heterogeneous company, 

A neat and thoughtful maid 
Will find it very simple 

To heed what has been said. 

And so with homelike " tidies," and a taste about our rooms, 
Our life may reach a reallv high ideal. 

Throwing nothing from the windows, 

Mending breakages with glue, 
You will show consideration 
For those who come after you.

There was once a particular Senior, 

Who cared for her room wondrous well, 

But with all her most careful attention 
An accident, sad, once befell. 

This particular Senior a treasure possessed, 
Which was, namely, a graceful black gown ; 

And in case of temptation, 'twas carefully hid 
Whenever she went out of town. 

But one day she was hurried, or mayhap forgot, 

And the Juniors, proverbially spry, 
Did spy out the treasure and carried it off 

Without even having to try. 

This particular Senior then went to the closet 
To take out her much cherished gown, 

And there was the hanger alone on the hook, 
But no gown did its yawning arms crown. 

With suspicions at once to the Juniors addressed, 
All their rooms she did quickly ransack. 

Did she find that lost treasure she earnestly sought ?

YES," said the girl with the slight wave in her hair and a silver bangle on her wrist ; " Ourtown is a pretty nice 
place, I tell you. Why, we have two railroads ; we're on the direct line of the Y. M. & U., and everybody 
always thinks it's lots " " Well," interrupted the girl who was inclined to be stout and had sparkling 

black eyes, " we have three railroads in our town, and the best companies come to our opera house." 

" Opera house ! " broke in the girl who wore a Peter Thompson, " opera house ! Goodness, we have two 
theatres, and get all the stars and newest productions. We're on the line with Chicago." • 

At the mention of this mighty name the others subsided for a minute, and listened with awe while the speaker 
continued : " Yes, we have the finest plays, the best lecturers and the most noted musicians. We have two parks, too, 
the grandest places to go in summer." 

" How big is your town, Louise ? " drawled a lazy voice from the depths of a bed (excuse me), couch, where a 
lazy girl, curled up among the pillows, was munching chocolates. 

" Oh, about twenty thousand, I think. The last census says fifteen ; but that was taken several years ago, and 
since then Ourtown has been increasing so in population that I am sure it is twenty, if not more." 
" We have thirty-five thousand inhabitants," drawled the lazy voice again. 


The Allerlei 

" My goodness ! " ejaculated two of the girls ; but the third continued airily: " Oh well, Western towns always '"t/O 
seem much larger than Eastern ones of the same size, because the East has so many more, naturally. The West is 
newer, you know, and there is a greater expanse of country to be built up. The West is so progressive, too. That is 
what 1 like about Ourtown." 

" I wonder what she doesn't like about her town," whispered the girl with the chocolates to the one with the 

" We have a Village Improvement Society ' 

" Oh laws, so have we," began the stoutish girl, " and a Y. M. C. A. building and two libraries, and a dozen, 
more or less, cemeteries." 

" Well, "said the girl with the bangle, " I'll warrant nobody has a prettier town than mine. We have the widest 
streets, and great broad pavements with grass plots extending out into the streets, and big, tall trees on either side." 

" A regular little village," murmured the girl in the P. T. 

" Our public buildings are beautiful, simply beautiful. We have a new Court House that " 

" Oh, speaking of buildings, our new hotel just outstrips everything," broke in the stoutish girl. " It's the finest in 
our state " 

" Which probably isn't saying much," giggled the lazy girl. 

" It's all fireproof," the speaker went on, heedlessly, " and seven stories high ! There are telephones in every 
room, and electric elevators " 

[91 ] 

The Allerlei 

" I don't suppose," interrupted the chocolate consumer again, " that any of you can boast of a Country Club." 

" Oh yes, we have one," answered the girl in the P. T., excitedly. " It used to be a house — somebody lived 
there — and now it's fixed over just splendidly. We go up there all the time." 

" Ours was nobody's house," said the lazy young miss. " It was built for a club, and is one of the finest in the 
United States. It is seven miles out in the country, and we go on the electrics. We have to walk a ways after getting 
off the car. They have the best things to eat there, and the dancing floor is a dream." 

" We haven't any club," said the girl with the silver bangle, meekly. 

" Nor we," echoed the black-eyed girl. 

A knock at the door. 

" Young ladies, this is study hour, and you should be in your rooms." 

" Anyway," said the girl in the P. T., as she gathered up her books, preparatory to leaving, " we certainly do 
have the most fun in Ourtown." 

" Oh, so do we," agreed the stoutish girl. 

" And we," echoed the lazy girl, indulging in a last chocolate." 

" And we," sighed the girl with the silver bangle and the slight wave in her hair, as she shut the door on her 
departing guests, and thought of the lessons unlearned. 


€o a tfyaint* tup 

Thou sittest there awaiting whom may come 
To quaff of Adam's beverage dainty sips. 
All ready to be placed at rosy lips, 
Little chained cup. 

In life thou hast a mission high to fill : 

To be the means of quenching thirst in throats 
To such degree no silver goblet boasts, 
Little chained cup. 

But why held by this heavy manacle ? 

Thy handle slight is surely almost cracked ; 
The quality of mercy someone's lacked, 
Little chained cup. 

Alas ! the meek and sorrowful reply : 

" Some ruffians bold laid hands on me when free, 
And ran and bore me off, so now you see 
A little chained cup. " 

Ah, spectacle pathetic to the eye ! 

It almost rends my pitying heart in twain ; 
Oh, that those daring thieves some shame would gain 
From the little chained cup !

Oh, look at the hands that are raised ! 
Who'll play the piano to-day ? 

You certainly ought to be praised. 
I really can't tell what to say, 

Your eagerness leaves me quite dazed. 

The music we'll have to omit ; 

I think we can do very well. 
Your lessons you all had best quit, 

The teachers I think I shall tell ; 
That surely will be a hard hit ; 

Their anger I hope you can quell. "

Time. — Sometime in the year 1905 about twelve o'clock at night. 

Place. — Room at Lasell Seminary for Young Women, Auburndale, Massachusetts. 

Characters. — Girl with raven colored hair — Kittie. Girl with tow colored hair — Jennie. 

Kittie (sitting up in bed with a start) — " What's that noise ? 
Hey, Jen, what's that noise ? " 

Jennie (sleepily) — " Hu-um. Noise, I didn't hear anything." 
Kittie (lying down again) — " Well, I'm sure 1 heard some- 

An unmistakable sound is heard under the bed and then a 
scattered running over the room. 

Kittie (excitedly)— " It's mice, I tell you, Jen. Turn on that 

Jennie, now thoroughly aroused, turns on the light. The girls 


The Allerlei 

shriek as two tiny mice are discovered. One of the tiny offenders 
scampers under the bed and the other makes his exit by way of 
the closet. 

Jennie (eyes full of terror) — " Kit, did you see them, two 
of them ? " 

Kittie (very much frightened) — "Well, I reckon I did. I'm 
not blind." 

Jennie (singing) — " Three blind mice, see them run. " 

Kittie — "How you can joke like that I can't understand. 
Ugh ! How I despise the things ! They scare me almost to 
death. Horrors ! Suppose one should get on the bed." (Covers 
head with blankets.) 

Jennie — "Well, I guess I'm scared too. Honestly, I won't 
sleep here another night. I won't stay here now, either. We can 
both go somewhere. Somebody will surely take us in. Why, I 
won't sleep a wink all night with them in here. I don't care what 
you say, I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of, to own that 
you're afraid of mice. I've heard awful stories — just dreadful — 
about them, how " 

Kittie (interrupting) — "O-h-h, stop, don't make it any worse. 
Where do you suppose we could go ? I don't know a single place. 
It's late, anyway. I was asleep. Can you see the clock ? " 

Jennie — " No, I can't. My watch is there on the desk. Can 
you reach it?" 

Kittie — " E-e-e ! I'm afraid to move. O-o-oh ! " 

Jennie — " What's the matter ? " 

Kittie (laughing hysterically) — " Nothing; I saw my hair and 
thought it was a mouse." (Succeeds in getting watch.) " Good- 
ness ! it's nearly twelve o'clock. We might get a trap from the 
housekeeper, but it's pretty late." 

Jennie (giggling) — " Yes, I should say it was, rather." 

Kittie — " Well, now, I don't care ; they oughtn't to expect us 
to sleep in rooms full of mice. Why just think of it, Jen, we saw 
two, and there are probably dozens more ! They were tearing 
around, having the best time when you turned on the light. 
Villains ! " 

Jennie — " I wonder what's in the waste basket. Is there 
anything in it— fruit or crackers ? " 

Kittie — " Not one solitary thing that I know of." 

Jennie — " Well, what do you suppose they came for, any- 




Kittie — " Oh, I don't know ; to keep us awake all night, I 
suppose. It would be a good idea perhaps to put the basket out 
in the hall." 


The Allerlei 

I yub Jennie (alarmed) — " Never, not I. You can do it." 

Kittie (indignantly) — " Well, I guess not." 

Jennie — " Well, if I did it I'd have to walk clear across the 
room, and one came right out from under the dresser, you know." 

Kittie — " Well, 1 reckon I'd have to walk farther than you.' 
I tell you ; you go get the basket and I'll put it outside. " 

Jennie — " Well, if you aren't the worst. You could just throw 
it out the door from where you are. If there isn't one solitary thing 
in it I don't see why it should be banished, anyway." (Silence 
ensues for a moment or two.) 

Jennie (sulkily) — " Well, I reckon I'll put out the light." 

Kittie (terror stricken) — " Oh, don't, please don't. Just as 
soon as it's dark they'll come right back." 

Jennie (restored to good humor, and laughing) — " We can't 
sit up all night, Kit. Suppose Miss Potter should come by, or 
Miss Witherbee ! " 

Kittie — " I wouldn't care a mite. I guess they'd run all right 
when we told them what was the matter. But don't turn the light 

off. I shall perish if you do, for it seems to me I feel them all 

Jennie — " I'm going to turn it out now. We have talked long 
enough to scare them away, I believe." 

Kittie — " Oh dear, I suppose we must. Wait, now, till I get 
my head covered up, though. Look at my shoes down there. I'll 
be afraid to put them on in the morning for fear I'll find a mouse in 

Jennie — " I know, and I'll be afraid to go in that closet. One 
went in there. Well, here goes." (Turns light out.) 

Kittie (about three minutes later, in a whisper) — " I don't hear 
anything, do you, Jen ? " 

Jennie — " Hum- urn. I don't — believe — they'll come — back." 

Kittie — " Can't you see them now, though ? Seems to me 
they're all around." 

Jennie (sleepily) — "Hum, awful — aren't — they?" 

No response. 





Did you ever waken early to the robin's throaty call, 
And watch the sun roll o'er the hills, a great big golden ball ? 
And little twinkling drops of dew from blades of grasses fall ? 
Did you ever, did you ever ? 

Did you ever wander far away across the meadows green, 
And reach the hills of Wonderland which bluish-tinted seem ? 
And there above all human kind sit down and gaze and dream ? 
Did you ever, did you ever ? 

Did you ever see the green-tipped waves come piling into shore, 
And hear the ceaseless murmur of the ocean's restless roar ? 
While crost its foaming billows tossed the daring sea gulls soar ? 
Did you ever, did you ever ? 

Did you ever stand forgetting in the stilly thick of night, 
In the silent peace of quiet, all the things that were not right ? 
With only space around you and the blinking stars for light ? 
Did you ever, did you ever ? 

Did you ever stop to think that life is glorious and good, 
If people are not striving to be better, that they should ? 
That everyone can happy be, 'tis only if he would ? 
Did you ever, did you ever ? 

L 'envoi 
If you never, if you never, 

What can I say to you ? 

You have not lived, it's true, 
If you never, if you never. 





Supposing some dark, cold night, along about two o'clock, the 
alarm of fire should be sounded and you should awake to find the 
building in flames. There would be time for you to escape, but not 
for you to gather together all your worldly possessions. In that one 
dazed moment before leaving your room, what priceless treasure do 
you suppose you would seize ? 

Belle, I am sure, would grab her music ; Steinie, her alarm 
clock ; Ina, her red hat ; Marion, her little mirror ; Prissy, her belt ; 
Edna M., her last letter ; Toodles, her cook book ; Amy, her drawl ; 
Katharine Mc, her paint brush ; Mildred J., her smile ; Lucy W., 
her crimpers ; Frances, her glasses (if she could find them) ; Edith, 
her gold beads ; Helen D., a picture ; May Florine, a question ; 
Bob, her cap and gown ; Anita, her bag ; Miss Nutt, her pills ; 
Anna W., some hair pins ; Cornelia, a bow ; Jolly, her bookkeeping ; 
Margarita, her arm attachment ; Kathie, her strong boxes ; Juli- 
ette, a song ; Augusta and Rebecca, their jacks ; Elsa, her absent- 
mindedness ; Edna T., her wedding dress ; Leslie, a book ; and 
what a remarkable looking company would appear on the campus ! 

Supposing some day you should find yourself in the great, busy 
city of Chicago. You've heard of it, haven't you ? You have 
once. That's all right, then. Well, as I said before, supposing you 
had just arrived in the city and wanted to buy a little of everything, 
and get a magnificent lunch in the bargain, where would you go ? 
You don't know ? Oh, my dear, to Marshall Field's, of course ; 

where do you suppose ? You never heard of Marshall Field's ? 
Oh, child, child, your education has been sadly neglected. Listen ! 
Marshall Field's is a great, great, great — I needn't go on saying that, 
because you could never realize its size anyway — big store; bigger, 
by far, than Jordan Marsh's or White's, or Wanamaker's in Phila- 
delphia. Why, they are mere pigmy stores in comparison. You 
can get anything you could possibly want there, from a ton of hay 
down to a grain of quicksilver. You don't have to hunt there for 
hours and hours for something you want as you do in Boston stores, 
and then not find it. As soon as you step inside the door your eye 
immediately lights on the object you desire, and your troubles are 
over. When you have dispatched with your shopping in this easy, 
satisfying manner, step to your left into the grill room. Be sure it is 
the grill room, for things are served '' hotter, quicker and better " in 
there. Of course they are served beautifully anywhere in this 
lovely establishment, but they are a little bit better in there. You 
can hear the orchestra playing, and everything is exquisite. I can't 
tell you what to get for lunch because anything they have is good, 
but tomatoes stuffed with sweetbreads are delicious ; simply delicious. 
I might go on forever dilating upon the charms of Marshall Field's, 
but time and space are limited. 

Only let me say in concluding, that Marshall Field's is the larg- 
est and best store, not only in the United States, but in the whole

Oh ! what a chilliness, 
Oh ! what a breeziness, 
Oh ! what a coolness, 

Between rival strikes ; 
Cannot you see them freeze, 
Do you not feel the breeze, 
When one poor striker sees 

T'other one near? 


And do they pull the hair, 
While at each other glare, 
Or wildly round them tear, 

These rival strikes ? 
No, they are very kind, 
Always polite, you'll find, 
Only their state of mind 

Shows in each eye. 


Weepings there are galore, 
Many a heart that's sore, 
One could not wish for more 

Rival strikes ; 
Still, what would living be 
If all were peaceful ? We 
Ennuied soon would be, 

That is a fact.

There's someone tapping at my chamber door, 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 
But the light is out and I cannot see 
What anyone wants at this hour with me, 
For I've been just as good as good can be, 
So I say " Come in " quite steadily. 
Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 

' Tis only a friend at my chamber door, 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 
So we fall to chatting quite busily, 
And we laugh a laugh so full of glee 
That afar up the hall goes the melody. 
Then once again there comes for me, 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 

There's a wee small tapping at my chamber door, 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 
There's a voice like the murmur of the summer sea 
Which says, " Dear birdie, I'm surprised at thee, 
That you should not think more lovingly 
Of your friends who are resting wearily ! " 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 

There's something tapping, I can hear once more, 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap. 
But there's no one about that I can see, 
' Tis merely my conscience tapping at me, 
To know how I could so naughty be 
As to grieve Miss P so painfully ! 

Tap, tipy, tap, tap, tap.

" Say, Jess, what'll I put on to-night ? " 

" Oh, I don't know. What'll 1 ? " 

" What's going on ? " 

" Nothing that 1 know of. It's Saturday night, though. It's 
always nice to dress up a little Saturday night." 

" I know it ; guess I'll wear my pink. Oh, I don't know 
though ; it's upstairs. It's lots of trouble to dress up here." 

" Yes, it is. Believe I'll wear my white silk waist — but the 
hook and eye are off the skirt that goes with it. That yellow 
waist'll do." 

" My red silk shirt waist suit is all right, I guess. Oh, I forgot ; 
I spilled ink on it, and never took it out." 

" Oh, dear, this yellow waist hasn't any ruching in it. How 
careless of me ! " 

" I know what I'll do ; I'll wear this old plaid thing. Mother 
says I must wear out my old clothes. I hate to, but to-night's as 
good a time as any." 

" Conscientious child. Well, I'm not going to dress up at all. 
It's too much trouble, and takes such an everlasting time." 

" I won't either then. I despise that plaid waist, anyway." 

9.30 P. M. 

" Jess, how much shall we put the window up to-night ? " 

" Let's see. Was it cold out to-day ? " 

" Oh, I don't remember. No, not very. Yes it was, too. 
There was a good deal of wind." (Moves window up, then down 
a little and up again.) " How's that ? " 

" Oh, all right, I suppose. Why not put it down from the top, " 
though ? - 

" Well, guess I can." (Changes it.) " Now ; that suit you ? 

" Do you reckon that will give enough air ? I hate a stuffy 
room. I'd rather have it too cold than too hot. Let's have it up 
about an inch from the bottom, too." 

So the long-suffering roommate changes it. 

(About five minutes later.) " Jess, it seems so cold in here. 
Afraid that window will have to be put down at the bottom." 

The worm will turn. 

" Well, you'll have to do it yourself then."

(Susie- Freddie Rhymes) 


Summer day so warm and bright, 
Limpid water clear and cool ; 

Little Freddie on the bank, 
Little Susie in the pool. 

Little Susie disappears, 

Freddie follows after ; 
" Swimming isn't easy sport," 

Fred remarks with laughter. 

Little Susie making bread, 

Tries to knead her dough right, 

Sets it then away to rise, 

Leaves it for five hours quite. 

Little Freddie tasting it, 

Makes a doleful face; 
"Say, can you make bread, Sue? 

What a mess of paste." 

Susie thinks she 11 give a reading 
From " The Stag at Eve " ; 

Walks up bravely, makes her bow, 
Guesses she must leave. 

Can't remember anything, 

Heart goes pit-a-pat ; 
" Goodness, Susie," Freddie cries, 

" What a fraidy cat." 

Susie starts to make a dress. 
Leaves the armholes out ; 

Puts it on and sallies forth, 
Big as life, about. 

Little Freddie spies her, shouts 

At her in derision ; 
" Seems to me, my dear, 

You ve left out some division." 

Sue thinks she'll be her father's help ; 

Keeps his books awhile, 
Sits up on a big high stool 

In all kinds of style. 

Somehow things did not come right, 

Father's up a tree ; 
Freddie laughing hard, 

Could only say, " He, hee." 

Susan trims a little toque 

To wear to church on Easter ; 

Sets off in a gleeful mood, 
With her only sister. 

Freddie, always rather late, 
Yells clear from the door, 

"Sue, where did you get that hat?" 
They worship now no more. 

After her exertions, Sue 

Tries some nerve composing ; 

Scares a little mousie 

Who all around is nosing. 

Susie screams, and to a chair 

Immediately hies; 
Freddie coming in just then, 

Laughs until he cries.

If we had the time to go each day 
To Boston town, not far away, 
And wait for hours on busy men, 
Who always seem to be out just then, 
And with our talk to bore them so 
They'd advertise to make us go, 
A hundred " ads " our book would line, 
If we had the time. 


If we had the time to write and write 
To the girls away, to them invite 
To take our book, I'm sure our script, 
In such enticing spirit writ, 
Would charm all those to whom we sent 
That they would buy to great extent, 
And we would make a book sublime, 
If we had the time. 


If we had the time to seize our brush, 
And to our workroom briskly rush. 
Whene'er we saw a funny scene 
Which to our eyes a sketch might mean. 
How many times you would appear 
Upon our little canvas here. 
And oh ! but wouldn't our book be fine, 
If we had the time. 


If we had the time in studying spent 
To give to this, we'd be content ; 
If teachers only said " Don't work ; 
Until it's done your lessons shirk," 
A splendid book we'd offer you, 
A masterpiece like unto few. 
We'd equal Milton in our rhyme, 
If we had the time.

Oh, won't you advertise in our book ? 

Come, now, don't you answer no ; 
Tis the nicest little year book, — 

Everybody tells us so. 
You know how many things we buy from you, 

You really ought to, don't you see ? 
I think it is your duty to the school. 
If not to me. 


You say we never buy from your store ? 

That illustrates the point I take ; 
If you but advertised in our book, 

Think of the trade you'd make. 
The new girls look in here to see 

What dry goods shop to patronize ; 
And then they rush to those they find. 
Why not be wise ? 


Come ! shall it be a fourth or half ? 

Or better still, a page, I think. 
What's that you say ? They are too much ? 

Well, now, an eighth is very cheap. 
But still, a store as large as yours, 

With stock of such superior kind, 
Could well afford a larger one, 
To my mind. 


You think you will not advertise ? 

Well, come, let's leave here right away ! 
I thought I'd like that picture frame ; 

I wouldn't buy it now for pay. 
I never saw a stingier man; 

He'll never see me any more. 
Perhaps he'll have a pain when I 
Go in next door.
